DALI CD VOL. 3
El CD VOL.3 DALI te presenta la "nueva" música (si no lo has escuchado antes, cualquier música es "nueva") para la inspiración y el placer de escuchar de los amantes de la música. Inevitablemente, no cada canción puede ser de tu gusto, pero creemos que todo el mundo podrá encontrar algo nuevo y que valga la pena. Dale unas vueltas y mira.
¿Por qué otra compilación de música?
Francamente, estamos hartos de canciones demo en bucle en shows de audio y tiendas. Las mismas cuatro o cinco canciones pesadas y poco inspiradoras (ninguna nombrada, ninguna avergonzada) se repiten ad nauseum. Típicamente, las canciones son seleccionadas solamente por su calidad técnica a pesar de un rendimiento musical mediocre que envejece rápido.
Una rama de la industria eleva de alguna manera las canciones que han de tener un status de referencia, aunque seguramente esta es una búsqueda anti-musical.
¿No debería nuestro objetivo como amantes de la música ser la versatilidad, la capacidad de reproducir cualquier cosa sea la fuente buena o mala?
¿Es justo - o incluso significativo- evaluar un buen sistema de audio basado en un parámetro que es estrecho a la vez? ¿y debería nuestra elección musical estar dictada por la tecnología?
Nuestra respuesta es un rotundo ¡NO! en ambos casos, aún así lanzamos compilaciones demo....DALI CD1 y CD2 fueron bien recibidos en términos de ventas y por los coleccionistas. Los dos discos condujeron a un "descubrimiento" más amplio en el mundo del audio de muchos de estos artistas y , con toda la humildad, aceptamos que tenemos una reputación que mantener.
Es nuestra intención que cada selección pueda demostrar varios aspectos de qué es lo que hace que escuchar música en un sistema de calidad sea una experiencia gratificante, algo que la mayoría de personas no puede imaginar hasta que lo prueban.
Lars Worre, Managing Director, DALI
Pat Metheny (born 1954, USA) started his career in the 1970’s. His talent as a guitar player was recognized by the legendary vibraphonist Gary Burton who offered the young Pat Metheny a place in his quartet. Later, Metheny started his own trio with Bob Moses on drums and the legendary Jaco Pastorius on bass.
Only a select few artists sign a recording contract without ever having performed in front of an audience. But that is exactly what happened to Swedish Sophie Zelmani (born in Stockholm, 1972). This unusual situation was certainly not caused by any lack of talent on Sophie’s part, but mostly by her shyness.
The Faroe Islands located between Scotland and Iceland is a self-governing country under the sovereignty of Denmark. The islands are populated by approximately 50,000 people, including Teitur Lassen (1977). Since his debut in 2003, Teitur has released four albums and his career and reputation as songwriter, musician and vocalist have constantly grown.
Zhao Cong plays the ancient Chinese pipa, a four-stringed instrument sometimes referred to as the Chinese lute. She learned to play from a very early age and won her first important award at the age of 13. Zhao was later recruited as first pipa soloist of the Central Orchestra for Chinese Music in Beijing.
Ane Brun was born in Molde, Norway in 1976. She lived in Barcelona for some time but has resided in Stockholm, Sweden since 2001. “It All Starts with One” is her eighth album since her debut album in 2003. Ane has toured extensively in Europe throughout the past decade and her albums have garnered rave reviews and won numerous awards.
Sko/Torp is a Danish pop/rock duo. Their debut album, “On a Long Lonely Night” (1990), drew inspiration from such American acts as the Eagles, Hall & Oates and Doobie Brothers, achieving huge commercial success with more than 200,000 copies sold. Søren Sko and Palle Torp released five albums before calling it a day in 1997.
In 2008, Danish jazz singer Sinne Eeg received a Danish Grammy for the album “Waiting for Dawn”, which was nominated as the best Danish jazz album of the year. Uncharacteristically, even Denmark’s normally highly critical jazz reviewers were effusive in their praise.
OP8 has so far released only one album, the creative and experimental “Slush” from 1997, but the members have managed to keep busy elsewhere. Howe Gelb (guitar, piano, vocals) is the man behind the successful Arizona based rock band Giant Sand with 20 albums behind them since their debut in 1985.
THE BRANDT BRAUER FRICK ENSEMBLE
If you think the history of music has been a continuous evolutionary process down through the centuries, you are wrong! A recent example of a completely unexpected musical mutation is the German trio The Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble, which grew out of a jazz-influenced dance group formed by Daniel Brandt and Jan Brauer, before they teamed up with Paul Frick, who studied classical music at the Berlin University of the Arts
JAN HARBECK QUARTET
Jan Harbeck was born in Aarhus, Denmark in 1976. In addition to tenor sax, Jan Harbeck plays soprano, alto and baritone sax, as well as clarinet and flute. After graduating from the North Jutland Music Conservatory, Aalborg, Denmark, Jan studied at New School (Mannes College of Music) in New York
HAYDEN - NORWEGIAN CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
Classical pianist Leif Ove Andsnes (born in Karmøy, Norway in 1970) has already won numerous awards and his discography and reputation are both impressive. Currently, he lives in Copenhagen, but he also spends much of his time in Bergen, Norway. He is a professor at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo, a Visiting Professor at the Royal Music Conservatory of Copenhagen and a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music.
The German audiophile label audite has released the first two albums in their excellent “Edvard Grieg – Complete Symphonic Works” series with WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, conducted by Eivind Aadland. The WDR Orchestra was formed in 1947 and their chief conductor today is Finish Jukka-Pekka Saraste.
At the age of only 14, Tim Christensen (born 1974) formed rock trio Dizzy Miss Lizzy, destined to become one of the most successful Danish bands of all time. The group had significant impact, not only in Denmark, Germany and Benelux, but as far away as Japan
Fallulah was born Maria Apetri, 1985, in Copenhagen, Denmark. The first time you hear her music you make an almost instinctive connection to dance and with good cause. Fallulah and her Danish mother (a professional dancer) often went on dance tours in Eastern Europe with her Rumanian father, a choreographer in Balkan dance.
MIKE SHERIDAN (FEATURING MAYA ALBANA)
Music history presents several instances of child prodigies, but the phenomenon usually occurs within the established realm of classical music. Danish Mike Sheridan (born October 25, 1991) proves that prodigious talent at an early age can also manifest itself in the modern electronica scene’s more experimental, rhythm-oriented sub-genre.
Deadmau5 (Joel Zimmerman, born January 5, 1981 in Toronto, Canada) does not consider himself a DJ, since he rarely plays songs other than his own. His musical style is influenced by House, Trance and Techno. One of the key points here is that the sound production of most of his often extremely bassheavy rhythm tracks is much more delicate and well produced than is normal in this genre.
